Among Tesla's recent negative headlines have been concerns over production goals, inquiries about vehicle safety in the wake of a pair of high-profile crashes, fears over the company's cash burn rate, and an unusual earnings call with CEO Elon Musk.
Mr Schwall was the electric carmaker's main technical contact with United States safety investigators. According to Wall Street Journal, he has joined Waymo's safety team that is headed by Ron Medford.
Also on Monday, Tesla said its highest-ranking engineer would take a leave of absence and CEO Elon Musk formally announced the restructuring he had previously hinted about on Tesla's freakish first-quarter earnings conference call.
"The number one issue at the heart of the Tesla investment debate is whether the company is now operating at a low level of utilization of a very large industrial complex, where incremental revenue can bring large incremental gross margins and improvement of cash consumption, or the next 50-100% of growth in revenue brings forth other calls on cash and does not materially move the company in the direction of a fully self-funding existence", they wrote. "To be clear, we will continue to hire rapidly in critical hourly and salaried positions to support the Model 3 production ramp and future product development".
He complained to another that the questioning was dry.
A Tesla spokesperson told Newsweek on Tuesday: "Tesla has not yet received any data from the auto and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, including whether Autopilot was engaged".

Police are investigating whether a Tesla sedan's semi-autonomous Autopilot feature was engaged when it rear-ended a fire department truck in Utah.
The driver of the fire truck was evaluated for whiplash but was not hospitalized.
Federal regulators are not investigating the crash of a Tesla electric vehicle this weekend, as Utah police try to determine whether the car's semi-autonomous Autopilot feature was switched on.
Tesla has said that autopilot requires constant vigilance and is not meant to take over driving responsibilities.
"We believe there is significant potential strategic value within Tesla, including its invested capital, design, brand, technology, relationships with key stakeholders (suppliers, governments, commercial partners) and its people", Jonas added. "In each of our past investigations involving a Tesla vehicle, Tesla has been extremely cooperative on assisting with the vehicle data", an agency spokesman said.
After a rough start to the week - Tesla shares closed down 3 per cent Monday after Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk announced a "thorough reorganization" - Jonas' latest call is further weighing on the stock today, with shares down 2.6 per cent in pre-market trading.
